HP 2133 Mini-Note Reviewed

Hardware Central has reviewed the HP 2133 and gave it a solid 13 out of a possible 15 rating.

So should you buy an HP Mini now, or wait for a probably improved version? That depends. The Eee still has its picture in the dictionary under cute, but the 2133 should be listed under style or glamour. You won't see a more chic handheld this year.

Against that, when Asus unveiled the Eee at $400, the conventional notebooks available at that price were easy to shun -- or to rationalize, "Yes, I know I could have more screen, keyboard, speed, and storage, but I'll trade that for the convenience and portability of the Eee." Today, the fully loaded HP faces some pretty darn nice conventional notebooks available at $750.

But show us a configuration with a faster CPU, Windows XP instead of Vista, broadband wireless, and even a smaller (80GB?) hard disk if necessary to stay under $600, and we are so there.
